I seem to be churning out the posts today - only because I have time to write about things I've been making over the last few days. But this card is one I have literally only just finished, I reckon the glue and ink aren't completely dry yet!
It was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest. a card with a band on it made from punched circles, and I decided to try to recreate the idea using Christmas papers - almost like a dense garland of baubles. A very handy way of using up lots of the snippets of patterned paper in my Christmas box!
First I punched loads and loads of circles, lightly inking the edge of each. then I cut a band of lightweight card, slightly longer and wider than I wanted the finished band to be, stuck all the circles down in overlapping layers, trimmed and inked the edges and attached it to the card front along with a stamped sentiment.
A very quick and easy card, and a warm fuzzy glow from using up all those snippets!
